Flashback: News Coverage of Michigan Death Fest From 1990 [Watch]
It’s always hilarious to look at how oblivious outsiders were to extreme metal when it just started to get its legs. Worried parents and news anchors with their devilishly handsome comb-over haircuts were ignorant to what death metal was about. This news coverage of Michigan Death Fest is a glimmering example of how silly their claims sounded to extreme metal fans.
The news channel attempts to explain death metal and Satanism in the genre, shows shots of displeased elderly people on committees, interviews with death metal fans, and even an interview with the mother of a band member, who helped organize the festival. Relive the glory of 1990 from the comfort of your computer chair and have a few laughs with us!
